Philadelphia: As we know during any NFL Season there will be a lot of good moments and those that will be shaking their head in saying what did I just see. In Philadelphia they have been saying that about the Eagles who are 1-4-1 on the season and needed to get their act together as they went to battle with the New York Giants on Thursday night from Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia.
Carson Wentz on a mission:
In this game, Eagles QB Carson Wentz would show the nation that the Eagles can turn things around and it would show on the first drive as Wentz scored on QB Draw for 7-0 lead
Wentz would continue to keep fighting after the Giants took a 21-10 lead with 6 minutes left in 4th as he drove down to find Greg Ward to cut into the lead
The biggest moment of the game with the Eagles down 21-16 late in the game Carson Wentz would connect with Boston Scott with the winning touchdown with 46 seconds left and sent the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field into a frenzy
Wentz would finish the game 25 of 43 for 359 yards, 2 touchdowns & 1 Int. Boston Scott would lead the Eagles on the ground with 12 rush attempts for 46 yards & have 3 catches for 46 and what was the game winning score.
The New York Giants would put up a fight and at times in this game they would make things difficult for the Eagles as they would take their first lead of the game with 6 minutes left in the 3rd quarter which made it 14-10 & then later made it 21-10 as Daniel Jones finds Sterling Shepard
The Eagles Defense would come up with some key stops in this game but the biggest one that iced the game as Brandon Graham would strip Daniel Jones and Vinny Curry would recover the fumble
The play by Brandon Graham did tonight to secure the win reminded everyone of the strip sack fumble he did on Tom Brady in Super Bowl 52.
With this win the Eagles are now back in first place with a record of 2-4-1 while the Giants fall to 1-6 on the season. The updated standings in the NFC East
So what is next for both teams. For the Eagles, they will now get ready to take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday November 1 from Lincoln Financial Field on NBC Sunday Night Football while the New York Giants are looking make things right as they battle Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 2 on ESPN Monday Night Football from Raymond James Stadium which is the Site if Super Bowl 55 in February 2021.
